Nicholas (Nick) Zepnick is a partner and intellectual property lawyer with Foley & Lardner LLP's Milwaukee office, where his practice focuses on working with clients to protect valuable technology and build their corporate brands. He negotiates technology-related agreements, reduces risk in support of product launch efforts, and develops IP strategies that focus on business objectives. Nick’s substantive work involves clients in the outdoor, vehicle, lighting and concrete products spaces. He also negotiates material transfer agreements, clinical trial agreements and other agreements in connection with the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical and medical device products.
Nick offers counsel with his clients’ needs in mind, a skill he honed through service as virtual in-house IP counsel for a Fortune 500 specialty vehicle manufacturer. That experience dovetailed well with Nick’s engineering background as he is a member of the Mechanical & Electromechanical Technologies Practice. An avid outdoorsman, Nick particularly enjoys representing several clients that produce camping, backpacking, fishing and hunting equipment.
